Summary

FocusSurfing is an extension that is designed to help keep you productive and focus while you are working throughout your day. We all have those go-to websites that you can be on for the entire day, one minute you are reading for your assignment the next you are scrolling away for 15 mins without realizing it. FocusSurfing was created to help limit the amount of time you spend on these websites by blocking them, don't worry it won't be blocked forever 🙂.

To do this you will set what days you want the extension to work and set the amount of time you wish to spend on these websites. Once you have exceeded the time limit you will be blocked from accessing websites until the next day.

You can also block sites for a set amount of time without waiting for the time you set to run out.

Features:

  • Block websites that are set by you
  • Specify when sites are to be blocked
  • Blockout Option: block sites immediately
  • Whilte list/ Allowed List option to block all sites except for sites that are on your allowed list
